I've just finished reading 2 books, Sarah's Key and Notes from the Other Side of Night. Both in part deal with the regime of Nicolae Ceausescu the former dictator of Romania. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon this article while doing further research on the man.

Prior to that it had been used to sell a wide range of products, including chocolates and condoms. The exhumation may be part of an effort to increase the value of the family name."
